Chaparral 255 SSI

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Picking our first boat on the 9th of June and can't wait our summer to begin..........it's been a little cold and grey here in Atlantic Canada but we're hoping for a warm summer. We decided on a 2006 Chaparral 255 ssi with 496 (140 hours) and I'm very happy with our choice. I joined the forum last night but was reading comments and getting pictures from the many owners on it. Just wanted to say hi and let you all know you have a new Chaparral family!

Pics to follow.......

Ok, A couple items to check off.

Spark plugs;  Every three years. If they haven't been changed do so. You'll notice the difference in power. AC-Delco's work fine. IMO

Impeller; Every three years. 

Trim tabs; If it doesn't have them, get them. Makes this 26 footer act like a 28 footer.
